    Wow I hate to say it, but it's too bad the BG who was shot survived. The way things have been going lately, the BG will now sue the armed citizen in civil court for emotional and physical damages. How backwards is that

    Yeah, but it's too bad that the best places to hit to "stop" is also very difficult to recover from.

    The real problem IMO is that there is any allowance in the system for a BG to sue his victim.

    Tennessee code gives the 60 year old man immunity from civil liability in this case.
